    catch someone off guard

    Hi!
    Could you check it for me?
    I am learning the phrase" catch someone off guard".
    "Her boyfriend often does something special to catch her off guard."
    Hopefully, I can get the answer.
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: catch someone off guard

    It is ok, though "catching someone off guard" usually has a more negative implication that the person should have been but failed to be aware of something as a matter of duty.
